You may have heard, but this year’s Pantone Colors of the Year are making quite the splash. You’ll find these colors everywhere, from the runway to the home and beyond. For lots of people, color goes no further than the eye. That’s why we love Pantone so much – there’s always a hidden meaning.

What’s the first hidden meaning you ask? According to Pantone’s website, “Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” In other words, look at these colors when you’re feeling stressed.

Secondly, Pantone Colors of the Year relate to social movements of today’s world. Catching on yet…blue…pink? Gender equality. As Pantone says, it also coincides with, “a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged.” We think that underlying message is pretty great.

So now that we’ve got you excited about embracing these two great colors, let’s get to a little shopping! Check out the information below to get your hands on some our favorite Pantone Colors of the Year items.
